Battlefield Hardline has been developed by Visceral Games, the team behind other successful games such as the Dead Space series, in collaboration with DICE, long time developers of the Battlefield series. The new game is focused on the war on crime, breaking away from the military setting featured in the previous entries of the series.

Even though the Battlefield Hardline setting is different than the previous entries of the series, the game developed by Visceral retains some features from previous games, such as the Levolution mechanic lifted from Battlefield 4 and more. The game also features plenty of new game modes such as the Heist, Rescue, Hotwire, Crosshair and Blood Money which take real advantage of the war on crime setting of Battlefield Hardline and provide a unique gameplay experience.

Battlefield Hardline is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The new update is also available right now on all formats in all regions.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
